BEAUTIFUL INSTALLATION AT PITROSE BEAUTY CONCEPT STORE (MILAN AREA, ITALY) SHOWING MY ARTISTIC SILK SCARVES CREATED WITH IMAGES OF TORN POSTERS…

Pitrose Beauty Concept Store ‘s owners had a beautiful idea. They created an installation showing my three silk scarves series now available in a very special limited edition. Pitrose Beauty Concept Store dedicated them an whole shop-window in the historical centre of Urgnano, Italy (Milan area). Silk fluxes are mashing up with outside autumn colors… Pietro and Rosy at Pitrose are very glad to welcome visitors with the gift of a booklet (Lacer/actions – Pictures of Torn (publi)City) and giving informations about artistic silk pieces displayed in the installation. They said that in the first days of the exhibition, people were really impressed about the show.       

The silk scarves design reproduces details of images concerning torn posters and urban “signs” I captured around the world. So, I had the way to turn “trash pictures” into an art subject (abstract scenes are also trasnferred on canvases, lithographic prints and other materials). The three silk scarves were produced with the assistance and collaboration of the internationally known textile designer Bruno Boggia, who works for the most famous international fashion stylists.

Blogger Marina Chetner (USA) wrote: “Roberto’s torn poster art inspired silk scarves are going to be the next big fashion trend… Personally, I think Roberto should set up a pop up shop for his works in Soho NYC, or even have them distributed in the Met Museum Shop”.

Artist and blogger Meredith Deerheart (USA) posted this article: “I received the scarf last night and took it outside to see all the hues and texture woven in gossamer.  I twirled around with it and felt like I had rainbow wings.  The transparency makes it look multi-dimensional… like floating colored glass.  I am rich, rich, rich! in color and texture today. I have a black cashmere dinner dress (long), and I pulled it out to make a long silhouette, then went outside and let the breeze blow the scarf lightly around the still blackness of my form.  The outfit looks so elegant, now, I will wear it to Chicago to celebrate by birthday.  I truly feel like the most beautiful woman in the world…  The pictures of the did not captures the extraordinary,  sheer luminosity of the silk, so in the the scarf is more stunning than I even imagined.  I think it is is a wonderful, extra surprise. I love it!  I love it! On my birthday, though, I will feel like the most elegant, beautiful woman in the theater wearing my scarf, and letting it flutter in the breeze as I walk. These are such beautiful, dimension scarves no camera can do justice to the gossamer effect of the silk refracted by translucent color… and when I dance with it and explore its movement through space, the scarf looks like fluid, translucent stained glass.
Honestly, if you want to impress a woman who’s wild about original fashion pieces, this a perfect gift… and a bargain. There’s a lot of crap on the market that all looks the same, and is more expensive. I love this scarf, and so does everyone who see me wear it. Beauty grows.  Never stop discovering, Roberto.  You have greatness pouring from every part of you”.

MY CRACKS AS “WABI-SABI”, THE JAPANESE ART OF CELEBRATING CREVICES AND TIME MARKS…

THE CRACKS WEEK: THE 6th IMAGE

***

Some friends of mine who work in arts told me that CRACKS – and all my LACER/ACTIONS researches about torn and decomposed publicity posters – are a sort of European example of “Wabi-sabi” which is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature, of accepting the natural cycle of growth and decay…

Yes, I’m glad for this matching. In fact, “Wabi-sabi” celebrates cracks and crevices and all the other marks that time, weather, and loving use leave behind. Architect Tadao Ando says: “Wabi-sabi reminds us that we are all but transient beings on this planet-that our bodies as well as the material world around us are in the process of returning to the dust from which we came. Through wabi-sabi, we learn to embrace liver spots, rust, and frayed edges, and the march of time they represent.” (Read more at What Is Wabi-Sabi)

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project, about  the decomposition of torn publicity posters on outside advertisings (my realistic and not manipulated images are transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles). Since 2009 I’ve been also workin’ on another matter. Not paper but metal and plastic surfaces, or metal and plastic platings. So, I entered the wonderful world of Cracks… We are surrounded by cracks. We live in a planet of cracks. And cracks may be considered as a life’s metaphor. My eyes and cameras discovered, in cracks magnifications, another astonishing textures in what we usually consider waste materials. Also my Cracks are realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images, as you see in this picture.

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF “CRACKS”, WHERE MATTER IS BROKEN BUT NOT SPLIT…

Cracks is part of my Lacer/actions Project but it moves in another direction. Through Lacer/actions I have been investigating and exploring the incredible dimension of the decomposition of torn publicity posters we usually see on outside advertisings.

My eyes and my cameras tried to reveal the colors and the shapes of ripped paper. All my images (transferred on canvases, lithographic prints or textiles) are the reproduction of real and not manipulated scenes.            

Since 2009 I’ve been workin’ on another matter. Not paper but metal and plastic surfaces, or metal and plastic platings. So, I entered the wonderful world of Cracks…

We are surrounded by cracks. We live in a planet of cracks (yes, cracks are maybe another metaphor of Life, as well as the waste-paper…)

I began taking and storing lot of images about cracks, specially the ones I see on particular metallic surfaces…

My eyes and cameras discovered, through cracks magnifications, other astonishing textures.

I like to repeat that all my Cracks are realistic, natural, random and not enhanced images.    

Yes, welcome to Cracks world, where  matter is broken but not split…

In this “postcard” the first of seven images I’m gonna post from today to next saturday. Enjoy them!

Roberto Alborghetti ‘s LaceR/Actions is a multidisciplinary project and research about the apparent chaos of ripped and decomposed posters and urban/street signs.

Transferred on canvas, reproduced on lithographic prints or textiles (as pure silk), re-built on collages or scanned in videoclips, the details of torn and decomposed posters give new life to paper lacerations and matter decomposition, as you may see in this picture which is one of the 40.000 images captured by Roberto Alborghetti during his research around the world. The most recent Roberto Alborghetti Show (“Colors of an Apocalypse: An Intrigue for the Eyes and Mind from the Decomposed Publicity Posters”) was displaced for 100 days in the enchanting  Aldobrandesca Fortress (XIII Century) in Tuscany (Piancastagnaio, Siena, Italy) from October 6, 2012, to January 15, 2013.
